Mount Trusmadi is a great alternative to Mount Kinabalu. The climb is even tougher and more challenging than Mount Kinabalu. Imagine a hike surrounded with pristine jungle and nature, cool mountain air and away from the crowds, that feels like you have a private camp all to yourself. Mount Trusmadi is strenuous, so do expect to get really mud dirty during the rainy season.

The Essence of Kota Kinabalu

The Essence of Kota Kinabalu

Sabah’s gateway to Borneo has long been on the radar for those eager seeing more of the natural splendour of Malaysia’s green heart. However, the city has blossomed over the years, where it once did not have a prominent position on the tourism map. Called KK by its residents, Kota Kinabalu has turned into a melting pot of culture, food and a strong affinity towards that what keeps the city such a pleasure to wander through. Its demands to follow in the footsteps of the 21st century are there, but holding tight to its historical values, sights and landmarks makes it an excellent example of old versus new. Turn your Malaysia Borneo exploration complete with our half-day touring the sights, sounds and cultural aspects of one of Malaysia’s thriving travel hubs.

Kota Kinabalu City Dinner Cruise by North Borneo Cruises
"Having been on dinner cruises at home in Australia, and being disappointed, we were pleasantly surprised by how upmarket, well organised and well catered this cruise was. The boat was clean and in good condition, the staff were very friendly and helpful, there was live music and the food was delicious and ample to cater for the passengers."..."

Malaysia Kinabalu Park Private Day Tour
"Great pick up and drop off from hotel in Kota Kinabalu. Very convenient. Enjoy the view of Mt. Kinabalu, the highest peak in South East Asia. The fish farm was unique because you could feed the carps from your hand, just let them bite the fish pellets off your hands, totally harmless because the carps had no sharp teeth. You could pet them like pets. What an experience. Walking in a hanging bridge across a tropical rain forest that's older than the Amazon jungle is another experience all together."..."
